The progress in the development and use of mirror optical systems with realfration of the adaptive methods for picture proceing is d1scued. Some ofour reenits presented in this work are connected with the examination and synthesis of a number of mirror syBtems The scientific solution of the aberration theory method and our study of the all-mirror optical systems are directed to the realirations of new complexes for adaptive picture processing. The unified mirror elements and a new module method for the synthesis of optimal optical configurations are presented. For many applications the mirror systems are more compact and qualitative. The complex binary and greyscaled images require rapid evaluation in modern devices. The new hybrid optoelectronic complexes can operate more effectively than computers and optical procors. The adaptive optical systems have some new functional possibilities for picture processing. They are used for image quality improvement contrast enhancement figure contouring interferogram analysis etc. The aim of this work is the presentation of the results obtained in the design of some complex adaptive systems for picture processing.
